Reduce nuclear dangers and adopt steps to create the conditions for a world free of nuclear weapons, secure nuclear materials, and ratify CTBT

Nuclear weapons remain as threatening as ever and can be ignored only at our peril. We believe the warnings issued by George Shultz, William Perry, Henry Kissinger, and Sam Nunn on the nuclear threat need to be heeded by our nation's leaders.
